Transitioning to Fall with Tobi

0 comments


When it comes to fall; I'm all about staying warm, being comfortable and hopefully showing some style. But there are days when it's so hard because the weather could be sunny and plus thirty then suddenly drop down to ten degrees. 

Although the changes are unpredictable, Fall is still my favourite season for fashion. Instead of dressing down, you can layer up to make your style more chic.

So here are a few of my fave outfits this month for the transitioning season with *Tobi
Denim Jacket | Zara
All My Love Halter Shift Dress | Tobi
Denim jackets are a must this season and they're easily paired with a black dress or white tee.
Amber Mesh Shift Dress | Tobi
Uniqlo Black Jegging
Medium Watch

I love the vibe of this mesh dress, it's see through but in an edgy way. You can wear it with a nice ripped black denim or tuck into your jeans and pair it with a fall coat.


Emma Open Back Sweater | Tobi

This sweater has an open back style but my most favourite part is the sleeve and v-shape knits in the front. The wide sleeves make this sweater a fan favourite and it's beautiful slimming effect.


What's your favourite fall outfit this season?

My Recent Visit to Skoah: Personal Training For Your Skin

0 comments




Skoah started in Vancouver in 2001 and they create spa experiences for each individual helping them understand their skin and personalizing different products for different skin conditions. After much success, Skoah is now all across Canada and teaching their knowledge on the skin with their amazing product line.

After my recent visit to Skoah in Willow Park Calgary, I feel like I finally understand my skin a lot more. They are very honest with their products, great knowledge on the skin and lovely at coaching me to better skin.

 So, this was my first time getting my facial done with Skoah and here's a quick review of my experience and the products used.

Facial: Facialiscious 75 min



First Impression: the store was very organized and split into different sections in terms of skin type. I loved how everything was very clean, minimal and easy to understand.



Pricing: moderate and they have this amazing membership program that allows you to save.
It ranges from full, lite and monthly depending on how often you need to go to facials.



Experience: So just like any other facial, you start off by undressing and waiting for the esthetician on the facial bed. My experience started off like a warm burrito, the facial bed was equipped with a nice warming sensation, made me instantly relaxed. The esthetician started off by asking me about my skin condition. She diagnosed my skin concerns by observing and instantly started coaching me about what's good and not good for my skin. As the facial went on with the exfoliating, cleansing, toning, masks and moisturizing - every interval was accompanied with an amazing massage from head to toe.



Favourite Products Used: 

AHA Mask (Exfoliator) 

For this mask, what I really like is the scent and sensation. It's very refreshing, pepperminty and once applied, tingly. It contains AHA which helps with exfoliating and loosening dead skin which helps me strip off the unnecessary dry skin. It's a great way to start to my facial to help me absorb the other products more effectively.


Charcoal Mask 

So as I've mentioned, I have an issue with blackheads and as you all know charcoal is a great product to purify, decongest and draw out impurities. My favourite part of this mask is that it has tea tree oil which acts as an antibacterial to help cleanse and seal the area from unwanted bacteria. I noticed after the application that my skin and nose, in particular, was very clean, brightened my skin tone and my skin didn't feel too tight after. My nose is finally blackhead free!

Hydradew Mask 

And here comes my favourite mask, the hydradew mask. I believe that with skincare in general, as long as you have hydrated cleansed skin - all skin problems should be resolved. And this mask delivers all the hydration you need without any oil-based ingredients.  This mask feels great on the skin, absorbs instantly, cooling and the best part - I left with dewy, glowing skin.






Overall: My experience with Skoah was amazing. From the love of minimal aesthetics with their storefront, amazing customer service, professional/knowledgeable esthetician to absolutely amazing skincare products that are gluten-free, vegan, PETA certified and high-quality olive oil, shea butter, and coconut oils. I'm amazed by how comfortable and relaxed the facial was from beginning to end - I did not want it to end. I love their membership program that helps us as clienteles to save money and set reminders to pamper ourselves and to keep our skin in line. The best part about this facial is that each facial is different, each time they'll personalize a facial for you in terms of what your concerns are at that time. I'm super impressed and I'm totally down to sign up for their membership.



If you're interested in trying Skoah and getting your glow on.


Here's a little treat from Skoah to my viewers.

My thoughts on Belif Skincare

0 comments



Although it's finally Summer and it's crazy hot out, my skin is still dry and prone to acne.
I've tried to change my skincare due to the seasonal change and I've gone through a few that just don't work for me. My skin feels dry around the mouth and t-zone area while my nose tends to get all the acne. So, I'm happy to have come across this Korean Brand - Belif Skincare: Believe in Truth*

The whole line is amazing but one of the products that I really need to rave about is The True Cream - Aqua Bomb. The texture is very light but once applied, it's this nicely dense cream that takes care of all my dryness. I love how my skin absorbed it really fast and leaves my skin with this nice elasticity, subtle healthy glow, and my makeup goes so well on top - no greasy feeling whatsoever!

Clearly, to say, this brand has it's knowledge on ingredients. 
They're so honest with their product that on every bottle - there's a clear written evaluation of every benefit.

And that's what I like, there are no lies, no extra harsh chemicals, no fragrance and it's all dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested. 




Let me know in the comments below if you have tried Belif and what's your favourite product from the line.
